Solar Energy Project

R&D projects in the field of solar energy and storage have as their objective the development of applications for the supply of electricity and steam in the oil & gas sector, reducing the overall energy footprint (e.g. in construction) and the implementation of sustainable initiatives to make available electricity in areas not currently or poorly served (e.g. sub-Saharan Africa). Research activities are focused on the design, development and subsequent application of technological solutions with a high innovation coefficient with respect to the state of the art. Research projects this sector are continuing in collaboration with MIT in Cambridge, MA (USA). In the context of the possible applications of intermittent renewable or non-programmable energy, such as solar, energy storage (the “Storage” project) aims to ensure continuity in the supply of energy.
